is Google trying to tell me something?

When I do a Google search on "Google", I see my post on Google Plus about Google Plus on page one. I see a few more of my Google Plus posts on page one when I do other searches.

I know that Google is tailoring the searches for my benefit, or possibly Google Plus searches. I can`t possibly be ranking for "Google" and other keywords.

What is Google trying to tell me with this. Is this information useful for SEO?

  • SEO London Services UK: If you are logged in to your Google account your Google Plus post will appear on the first page.
    Log out and then you will see the current results without your emtries
  • AFSB: I also see a few Google Plus posts that are not mine. Who sees these posts? All who are logged on to their Google account?
  • promoz seo: These are personalized results on SERP. Most probably you were logged in and that is the reason Google showed you your G+ posts. You might have somehow engaged with the other people's G+ posts and that can be a reason, those are getting shown.
    Try Incognito window on Chrome or Private window on Mozilla to get all neutral results (non-personalized) from any type of searches on SERP.
